Patrick Procktor PortraitAlthough born in Dublin (1936), Procktor was largely brought up in London and Brighton. After being taught art at school by Kyffin Williams, the noted Welsh landscape painter, Procktor attended the Slade School of Fine Art and upon graduating in 1962 travelled around Italy and Greece. The following year he held his first exhibition at the Redfern Gallery with whom he would be associated for much of his career.

By 1968 Procktor was showing in New York and exhibited abroad regularly thereafter alongside extensive travels throughout India, China and Japan. Procktor was also a successful printmaker, his illustrations for an edition of Coleridge’s, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in 1976 being a notable accomplishment. He was made an R.A in 1996 and his works are well represented in public collections both in Britain and abroad.
